Uncharted is far superior to TR in everyway

Tomb raider is like sonic the hedgehog it's one of those ip's where they keep making shit game after shit game and the only reason the title sell is nostalgia

There are dozens of war games, one of them is the best and that’s not stopping them from making more.

There’s room for multiple Indiana Jones rip off games. :P

Have you played this generations Tomb Raider games? I've actually enjoyed them. The series was pretty horrible for awhile though. I'm really looking forward to next months reboot.

Tomb Raider: Underworld?

The only Uncharted game I played was for the PS Vita. I got bored with it about half way through and stopped playing it. I'm assuming the PS3 games are better?

I never really thought of the player character as 'me.' I am not a blue hedgehog, I'm a man. The PC has always been a character, to me. So I really don't care what sex they are. If there is a choice of characters I choose the ones who are the best (i.e. the one most fun to play as or the one who would most suit my play style or the one who would let me win etc). So, for example, if Chun Li was the best character I would play as her. That's not the case but that's how I come to my decision.

If it's purely cosmetic and I get to choose, I generally prefer to look at a female pretend bum than a male pretend bum because I'm straight. If it's a game I'm likely to play online then I might choose a male character because people sometimes assume that you are the same sex as your character and it gets confusing. If it's single player, I know who I am so I pick whatever. Also, if it's a Bioware game or something like that then I will play as a male character so that I don't have to worry about other male characters hitting on me the whole time (although with Bioware that's no guarantee!)

I usually prefer it when the player character is a well-established personality in its own right (like Lara Croft) than a character I design myself. In the latter case, the story becomes really boring because they have to write it as if the main character is a total blank slate because they don't know whether you're going to choose male or female. So, apart from a few really obvious moments when a line of dialogue is changed in a ham-fisted sort of way depending on what sex you're playing as, you just get a story in which the main character is assumed to have no personality.

Generally speaking, though, I don't have an over-abundance of fucks to give about this. Play as what you want, it's all make-believe at the end of the day.

I'm really looking forward to getting the new Tomb Raider game.

But I've also said to everyone who asked my opinion of it that one of the reasons it looks great is "They Unchartered it".
